APPRENTICES in Rotherham are looking forward to a bright future in construction.

Young workers Daniel Essex, Robert Lane and Nick Boothe have celebrated passing their NVQ studies with flying colours.

The trio are part of a team of apprentices hired by housing support services firm Willmott Dixon Partnerships, based in Bradmarsh Business Park, studying for NVQ level 2 and 3 qualifications.

They have been taken on to help meet skills shortages.

Building maintenance operative apprentice graduate Daniel, aged 43, from Rotherham, was also picked out for a special award recognising his commitment to learning, receiving the Willmott Dixon Apprentice of the Year title.

He said: “Being on an apprenticeship with Willmott Dixon has been a journey in itself - a continual learning process. I am thrilled to have graduated.”

Mick Williamson, managing director of Wilmott Dixon, said: “We are long-term investors in Rotherham’s future and want to leave a lasting legacy, and this includes helping to improve employability skills of people in the area.”
